Dalby State High School
Boarding school with a difference...
Are you looking for a home away from home for your son and/or daughter? Dalby SHS Bunya Campus is set on a stunning 400 ha of rich cropping and grazing land on the outskirts of Dalby 2/12 hours from Brisbane. Your family will enjoy a full service residential facility with loads of space and activities while attending one of QLD's leading state high schools with a long history of excellence across many fields.
Dalby State High School moved to its current location in 1954 and is the longest established secondary school in the Dalby district. The addition of the previous site of the Australian Agricultural College Corporation site (Dalby Ag College) as a campus of the school occurred in 2011. This addition resulted in acquisition of all agricultural training resources and the 116 bed residential facility. Since 2012, the two campuses have been known as Nicholson campus (existing site) and Bunya campus (new campus).
Dalby State High School is a secondary school that provides young adults with a secure and well-ordered environment to acquire the skills, knowledge, personal qualities and valued credentials essential to life in the twenty-first century. We are committed to developing the best educational outcomes for our students.
The school holds an enviable record in academic, cultural and sporting competitions. We have a strong performing arts programme with its annual musical and school bands well known in the district. Students also access an expanding vocational program including vocational certificates, school based apprenticeships and structured workplace learning programs.
The student population reflects all aspects of this diverse community. About 75% of secondary students in Dalby regional council area attend government schools. Students join us from neighboring p-10 schools to complete their secondary education. This diverse set of origins requires orientation and transition processes to be undertaken at both year 8 and year 11.
